This 11” long semi-polished blade will go through almost any objects with ease and maximum impact..
It is named definitely because of its special feature unlike the regular Panawals yet is a “Panawal” khukuri after all. The knife is especially designed or made for heavy duty work. This fact is well supported by its special craftsmanship of the blade (full layer) and handle (full tang) of the kukri. This 11” long semi-polished blade will go through almost any objects with ease and maximum impact.
This kukri is basically the “World War” version widely used by the Gurkhas during world war days however with an improved finishing. Unlike its siblings, the blade is semi-polished and has a fuller or hump that runs across from the tip to notch area on the surface panel. It is made so to give more strength and durability to the width of the blade while in use. The curvature will give much needed support to the flat surface for heavy duty work as it helps to reduce tension that is generated when stroked hard against a target. It is also a display of true craftsmanship as it is the very hard to craft.
The handle of this kukri is made like that of the famous “Panawal” version where the flat tang goes all the way through the handle, and rivets are fitted to strengthen the fixtures. The metal tang can also be clearly seen at the two sides of the handle. Indian Rosewood is used to give an overall matching look and sturdiness.
A different looking frog is introduced to give an interesting and appealing look where a brown leather thong is double crossed (XX) in the front face. A brown leather loop (lanyard hole) is also fixed on the tip of the scabbard just incase one needs to tie the khukuri around his thigh.
Traditional Karda (small knife) and Chakmak (sharpener) are discarded.

We have come across too many companies claming themselves to be genuine manufacturers of kukris which is in fact all untrue and we condemn such activities. We would therefore appeal all our visitors/buyers to be aware of such scamps and be extra cautions when buying online. After all, we want you to get the real things from the real people.
